Peacefully and without a struggle, Mrs EMELINE E ROBINSON, passed from earth

to eternity, at 11 o'clock last night surrounded by children and grandchildren, who, while saddened by the event, felt that death was a true release from a condition that was only death in life. The deceased had been a invalid for some years, and, about six weeks ago, she was prostrated by with a paralysis stroke, that was the forerunner of her final disposition. She was known to all old residents of Wilkes-Barre, for she was born in this city in 1814, and lived here all her life, a period of 76 years. Like her late husband, T W ROBINSON, with whom she consorted for half a century, she was widely known, and her demise will inspire universal sorrow.

SOUTH WILKES-BARRE MINE DISASTER:

A little after 4 o'clock yesterday an accident occurred in South Wilkes-Barre Colliery No. 3 of the Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Co., located on Parrish Street, within a stone's throw of the Van Leer House at the head of Main Street. A tunnel, starting a few hundred feet from the bottom of number 3 shaft, and running quite a distance, had been set on fire by an explosion of gas. Eight men were known to be working about three thousand feet beyond. Their names are as follows:

THOMAS MCDONNELL, aged 20, single, lives on Spring Street

FRANK CULL, aged 55, married, wife and five children, Jones Street

HUGH DUGAN, aged 34, married, Jones Street

THOMAS JAMESON, aged 19, single, Jones Street

THOMAS WILLIAMSON, aged 32, married, wife and four children, corner Mills

and Brown Streets

MICHAEL FERRY, aged 28, single, Stanton Street

JAMES 0'DONNELL, aged 32, married, three children

JOHN MCNELIS, aged 32, single, Brewery Hill

As soon as the fire was discovered, efforts were promptly made to rescue

those endangered.

The JAMIESON home at 141 Stanton Street is one of indescribable misery.

Yesterday was the first that THOMAS went into the mine. It proved to be his

last on earth. A brother of his had a leg cut off some time ago in an

accident. His father, it is understood, cannot secure work. (condensed)

lived in Baltimore, but came here after the death of Mr MERCUR to live with

her sister. Some months ago she fell and sustained a fracture of the hip.

Later she sustained a stroke of paralysis, from the result of which she

hovered between life and death. Deceased was about 65 years of age.

Funeral Friday at 3:30 pm. (condensed)

 

From Plymouth: JOEL ROSENFELT died yesterday afternoon at the home of his son, NATHAN ROSENFELT, of Church Street.

At Parsons Mar 4, JAMES STAPLE, aged 56. Funeral Fri at 2 p.m.. at the

Primitive M. E. church

 

SOUTH WILKES-BARRE MINE DISASTER:

Under the present conditions of things in the mine, with the blazing tunnel widening, and strengthening the barriers to thorough investigation, there is

no telling when a search mission will succeed in deciding the fate of the

victims. The flooding process continues today, but there must be long and

tedious delay before the fire will be subdued by these means.

 

ANOTHER FATAL MINE ACCIDENT:

JAMES LENNARD and THOMAS OWEN were badly hurt at the Plymouth Coal Co. shaft

in Plymouth this morning. They had entered the mine accompanied by six rock

miners. They prepared a blast but put an iron cap on instead of a wooden

one. The iron cap exploded fatally injuring LENNARD, and injuring OWEN so

that he will probably be crippled for life. The others escaped.

 

BRIEFS:

From Plymouth: JAMES ROGERS, aged 20 years, was seriously squeezed between

cars at No. 11 colliery

 

From Shickshinny Valley: Mr and Mrs J A WIDGER visited the latter's parents

here. She is a native of Kingston Twp, and was formerly the wife of the late

ROBERT BEAM, Esq.

MARRIAGES:

The marriage of Miss AGNES DAVIS and DAVID RICHARDS took place last evening

at the bride's residence, 10 Airy Street, by Rev Hughes of Ashley. The

deceased's brother ERNEST ROTH, at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Rev H L Jones

and Rev H E Hayden officiated and a choir from St Stephen's church sung.

Interment was made in Hollenback cemetery.

 

MINE ACCIDENT:

RICHARD PARRY was injured seriously by a fall of rock in the Hillman Vein

colliery yesterday. It was his first day's work in the mines.

 

 

PLYMOUTH MINE ACCIDENT:

Mine disasters seem to be contagious. The accident, which occurred in No.

12 Plymouth Coal Co.'s colliery, and which was reported in the Leader, hurt

two men so badly that they are not likely to recover. One of them, JAMES

LEONARD, aged 28 years, married, with a wife and one child, had his right

arm fractured, one eye blown out, and his left leg broken in three or four

places. THOMAS OWENS, aged 32 years, married with a wife and several

children, had both legs broken. They were tamping a rock hole when the

blast exploded.

 

 

SOUTH WILKES-BARRE MINE DISASTER:

The condition of things at the South Wilkes-Barre colliery remains about the

same as yesterday, with the exception that efforts to flood No. 3 shaft are

progressing and meeting with success. An accurate sounding was made at 11 o

'clock this morning and 57 1/2 feet of water was found. It will be necessary

to add 369 feet to this before the level is reached of the working in which

the blazing tunnel is located. This will take several days.

 

MINER'S PLIGHT IN PLYMOUTH:

There is no use in longer disguising the fact that many families in this

locality are hard up. Even when the collieries made three-quarter time they

had as much as they could do to keep body and soul together. Now, however,

when the collieries are working only a few days in every month, with no

prospect of doing better, people are becoming discouraged as hunger and want

stare them in the face. Indeed, many who are supposed to be in easy

circumstances, are in actual need.

 

 

BRIEFS:

From Plymouth, MICHAEL O'DONNELL and family moved yesterday from Mount

Pleasant, near Hazleton, to Welsh Hill.

FRONT PAGE EDITORIAL: HELP THE NEEDY:

Several times of late the Leader has referred in both local and editorial

columns to the distress so prevalent among the poor of the city and how

great an opportunity is just now afforded for charitable work. There has

probably been no period during the history of the city during the past

decade that so much privation has existed. Though there is so much distress

hereabout, the people of Wilkes-Barre are abundantly able and willing to

relieve it. Experience has shown it in many ways.

The organized charitable and missionary societies are doing a splendid

work, but it is doubtful if they have the means at their disposal to meet

all the requirements, either in the way of workers, of money, or of

provisions. So also the churches are doing what they can to relieve

suffering among their own people.

It has remained for the [Wilkes-Barre] Record of this morning to suggest a

practical scheme, which may if carried out accomplish a great deal of good.

The idea is advanced that there should be a central storeroom where clothing

and provisions could be sent, and from where distribution can be made under

the auspices of the charity committee. The matter is too important to be

lightly passed over. There is penury, want, and suffering all around this

city's suburbs, and now is the time to relieve it in so far as it may be

possible. The Leader will be willing and anxious to aid in any suitable

measure, which may be adopted. (CONDENSED)

 

BRIEFS:

Wilkes-Barre needs more factories

 

The Empire colliery has again resumed

 

There are a good many houses to rent about town

 

The streets are daily filled with idle men

 

From Pittston: The Pennsylvania Coal Co. will pay their employees tomorrow.

Pay day in this vicinity does not amount to much nowadays.

 

 

COMMENTS FROM THE EDITORIAL PAGE:

WILKES-BARRE'S manufacturing industries are all paying. The only fault to

be found is that they are not sufficient in number

 

The shortage in the coal output of this region last year, which did so much

to depress business hereabout, will not be an unmixed evil, if, as now seems

likely, it shall lead to the giving of greater attention to the importance

of manufactures. If we can pluck the flower from the misfortune, we will

have been blessed by it.

 

Wilkes-Barre Evening Leader, Thu, Mar 13, 1890

 

 

PRESBYTERIAN PEWS:

A large, interested and monied audience met at the First Presbyterian church

last evening to secure pews prior to the opening of the handsome house of

worship which will occur on Easter Sunday. A more determined lot of men and

women it would be hard to find. Their object was to secure a good seat and

when it is understood that the pews sold last evening will in all

probability not change hands for half a century their eagerness to become

the posssessors of good pews is readily excused. Mr I P HAND arose and

opened the meeting by calling upon GEORGE BEDFORD to make some necessary

explanations. Mr BEDFORD said that the prices put upon the pews were not

larger, and in some instances not as large as, other churches, and that the

price bid over and above the regular rental for the privilege of a choice

would go toward reducing the debt. At the close, very few seats were left.

Jersey and other states asking if any help is needed in relieving the

distress of the mining population. No help is needed. The mayor is not

pleased that any idea to the contrary should get abroad, but highly

appreciates the benevolent spirit which prompted the kind offers he has

received.
